I have used the garage now on a number of occasions for both service and MOT. I have been very happy with the service received and the honesty of those at the garage. They are a credit to their trade and I will continue to use them moving forward.

I thought that I had a problem with a noisy timing chain on my Corsa diesel van. James said that I should not drive the van to the garage in case it were to break and cause serious damage to the engine. He arranged for a recovery truck to collect it. This cost me £50 which I thought was very reasonable and the service was quick and the driver rang me to say that the van had been delivered to the garage. James called me shortly afterwards and said that it was in fact the water pump that had a noisy bearing and that he would recommend replacing that along with the auxiliary belt and that the timing chain was OK. He said that this would be about half the price of a replacement timing chain. He fixed it that day and I picked it up the following morning. He kept me informed and I was very pleased with the service and the price. It cost me £223 including the £50 for the recovery. Thank you very much.
First class service and first class workmanship from James, from initial phone call to completing the work on my car. His knowledge and expertise was second to none, readily explained everything and gave his honest opinion and the options available for the repair.. fair price as well for all the work he completing and in a day
Did a real good job and very quick would recommend
I got many quotes for clutch replacement on my Hyundai i20. Acer's quote was £100 cheaper than the next cheapest. I was wary about going for it but decided to take a chance after reading their reviews. I made the right decision ! Acer give you reasonably priced, honest, down to earth, friendly and most helpful service, unlike the smug forced politeness you get at main dealers. They go the extra mile to make sure you are a happy customer. A broken bolt in the clutch fork had damaged the clutch, causing a violent jerking when moving off from rest and stiffening of the gears. They replaced the clutch and fork (an expensive dealer-only part) for probably half what a Hyundai dealer would charge. Now I move off very smoothly and the gears slide in like butter. Lovely job. I'll be back at MOT time.
Really friendly guy, was suspicious at the price as it was so much lower than the Kia garage I usually use, but I took a punt and am glad I did. Not sure what parts have been used, but confirmed their Kia approved so no worries. Overall cracking little garage, cracking price will absolutely be looking for their names again when I next need a quote.
Did a great job and would recommend them. Very polite staff. Will use the garage again
Very helpful polite willing to sort problem out but didn't need them managed to sort problem out myself but would use them in future if needed to thank you
Very happy with the work they have done on my car, Recommend to friends and family.
Very good service from these guys I would highly recommend them to anyone. cheers lads
Very happy with the repairs, service and price. Would definitely use again or recommend to others.
Superb service! Cannot recommend highly enough. Lightening fast service and well below price quoted by others, certainly at least 5 days quicker than quoted by others. Many thanks to James - great service.

A head gasket is effectively a seal which is essential for maintaining the temperature and integrity of a car engine. It's a part responsible for sealing pressure within the engine as well as the distribution of oil and coolant.
Every time you turn on your engine the head gasket has to operate within very high temperatures and pressures, which is exactly what it is designed to do. The engine of your car needs to be cooled constantly as it relies on combustion for power and the head gasket is the core component in performing this job.
If the head gasket is damaged, the engine will quickly overheat and serious damage will be caused. Overheating in the engine of your car will lead to a loss of compression, the mixing of oil, water, coolant as well as a reduction in lubrication.
The head gasket is a very complex piece of equipment and so a variety of materials are needed to build it. It has to be able to withstand and function normally at extreme temperatures and pressure, it also needs to be resistant to all of the chemicals and oils which rush around your car engine.
As a result, each gasket from one car to the next is different as the demands of each engine are unique. Car manufacturers like Ford, Vauxhall and BMW spend millions of pounds every year in the research and development of head gaskets to help manage the pressure and cooling of engines.
Unfortunately, if you need a head gasket repairing, it will be on the more expensive side. However, if you follow the advice below you can learn how to recognise problems with your gasket before something serious happens.
There are other signs to look out for but unless you are a trained mechanic it will be difficult to spot them which is why it is so important that you have your car checked if you suspect there is an issue.
As mentioned above, if a head gasket blows, it can be a costly repair for you as a huge increase in temperature throughout the engine could very easily cause a range of other issues.
If you need a head gasket repair or if you think you might have an issue with the unit, it is vital that you pay attention to the issue, if you ignore the signs above and the gasket blows while you are driving this could cause serious threat to your safety.
A blown head gasket repair can be quite costly for any driver, no matter what car you drive. There is no easy head gasket fix and so you will need to get an experienced mechanic to take a look. The scale does vary for a head gasket repair when looking at different card brands. For a Mercedes, pricing is over £700 on average whereas for a Fiat the price is around £355 on average.
